where it's now ten am this wednesday morning thanks for choosing us few news this hour some developments on syria to tell you about first off the government forces in syria have driven out terrorists from the west bank of the euphrates river. and after a series of losses islamic state seems to be on the brink of defeat in the country with the syrian army forces advancing on the terrorists on two fronts right now these are some exclusive pictures we've got for you from the area several days ago the syrian army managed to get across some parts of the river allowing for a new advance on the russian military has now established a bridge that enables them to cross. reports now from the west bank of the euphrates. once. most exclusive resort's.
a modern day fortress out of necessity. for three years the garrison here. i says attempts to cross the river at times it was a close run thing. and you don't have sawed going on an hour from the onset coming up to the roof was very dangerous because of the snipers it was really bad but when the army broke the siege of the fell back a month ago it would have been suicide to film up here not anymore. these five star hotel seem better days but thanks to its grandiose design and height acted as something of a fortress here indeed as sort and just to show you how close we are if you have a look through this hole at that hospital well everything behind that is isis part of the city of that is or across the river they also hold sway this is all their
territory that's the euphrates river and across it is isis it's from there that they shelled the city at will and from there that they launched the occasional raid across the river taking the other bank is key to liberating the city entirely isis still sends fighters and alms back and forth across the river at night it may take weeks but it is inevitable isis in syria is on its last legs its collapse has been as spectacular as its rise since the beginning of the year the so-called calif it has lost thousands of square kilometers losing precious oilfields and strategic towns to the advancing syrian army and the us backed rebels that is not to say it's over all that it will be. isis has nothing left to new ones
according to the syrian military and the families of isis fighters and diehard supporters have allegedly retreated to the town of my idea and they have nowhere else to go in the shrinking caliph at the white. good indication for what they might do in the future everywhere they were whatever these areas where liberate the people who suffered the presence of isis have told us. about how you people as you would feel it's not surprising that if they would there was no way for anyone to predict what extent they would do that but. would they be hampered by any norms of any reason or any more i live the past doesn't indicate that this is the final act the dream of an islamic state has been shattered but even in
its death throes it will inevitably claim more lives guys do you have. from there is order syria some other developments russia's defense ministry has confirmed that five al nasra commanders behind the attack on a russian military police unit last week have been killed in a targeted missile strike in a separate mission of russian strategic bombers have carried out strikes on my cell and on those representations in the syrian provinces of deer and so on and in italy the defense ministry said all targets were located outside residential areas. i. i i. i. i i. i.
i . war of words continues to escalate between the u.s. and north korea donald trump now said the united states is fully prepared to explore military options against pyongyang if washington feels it's needed at the same time a state department spokesperson described the u.s. president as an effective communicator while trying to deal with north korea we are totally prepared for the second option not a preferred option but if we take that option it will be devastating i can tell you that devastating for north korea that's called the military option if we have to take it we will the president certainly. is a very effective communicator and the president speaks very clearly in terms of his position coming out of the white house well apparently donald trump is an effective
communicator he doesn't want to attack north korea while at the same time he was he has been threatening north korea with military options for quite a while and we've heard him go on and the leaders of north korea responding when there was the recent statement saying little rocket man won't stay much longer we've seen angry responses from north korea heather nauert was asked at the state department about whether she thought it was helpful for down trump to speak this way on social media feel that the tweets of the name calling and state. made over twitter on north korea you feel like that is effective communication i think the pick the president is an effective communicator i think people know exactly where he stands we have had a good deal of success in pushing forward with our diplomacy campaign that hasn't changed that certainly hasn't changed in the president has helped rally the world together rally the world together in the peaceful pressure campaign against kim
jong un's regime so apparently she considers threatening a country that has nuclear capabilities with destruction to be a great diplomatic success and this doesn't sit well with pianka they fired back with their own responses we've been having this warmongering rhetoric back and forth between the leaders of north korea and the leaders of the united states for months now the escalation of terms has increased the question is when will this rhetoric transform into something more serious. here of strategic patience. with the north korean regime has failed states is prepared to use the full range of our capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies our respective leaders came to own but said the u.s. would be unhappy to witness north korea strategic power on its independence day and
call for frequently sending big and small nuke packages. best not make it worth the risk to the united states. they will be met with fire fury. like the world has never seen north korea has finished preparation for a strike and will launch the u.s. does not act sensibly and the threat to the united states or territories will be met with a massive military response from the u.s. and the blacks because of national communities will see. stepless be so on the korean peninsula the young gang will retaliate against attempts to impose sanctions and pressure from washington with more powerful counter measures the forthcoming measures to be taken by the d.p. arche will cost the us the greatest pain and suffering it has ever gone through in its entire history if it is forced to defend itself or its allies we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea but if you're going to be since the
united states declared war on our country we will have every right to take countermeasures including the right to shoot down u.s. strategic bombers even when they are not inside our country's airspace. as your politics analyst joseph chang told us he believes president trumps trying to sound firm on north korea only to seem tougher at home. the messages are certainly very confusing in his united nations general assembly speech president trump to totally destroy north korea the statement was aimed to please his right wing nationalists concert tour ends at the same time his government officials have been stating that the united states doesn't see a region. korea north korea is expected to continue to engage in new create has only rather freak one miss out paris since no
force no military action has been picked regarding previous has it is quite and imagine a bowl of food. for further miss out has the united states then choose to take military action against north korea. and islamic preacher known as i saw has gone on trial in germany he's accused of having inspired several terror attacks in the country including the christmas market attack in berlin in twenty six being peter all of a hospital tells. hiding his face in court he's also known for turning his back to the camera during his recordings called the faceless preacher goes by several names more commonly known as. described as i saw in germany with direct contact to the group's
leadership according to prosecutors he's accused of being the main talent scouts of islamic state in germany recruiting people to go to syria to fight do this not the goals of this network what's a regular people in germany and to send them to syria to fight among side i say requires. we believe is a member of the arsenal terrorist group isn't just accused of. cruising fighters for foreign jihad he also spoke regularly at the mosque that was attended by an ace armory who killed twelve people and wounded almost sixty after he rammed a truck into a christmas market here in berlin. apart from a perlin attack or it's thought that at least one of three teenagers who set off
a bomb at an indian wedding were influenced by. willow was arrested in november twenty sixth seen along with four associates he was charged with creating a pan regional salafist jihadist network an iraqi national will or arrived in germany back in two thousand and one police had been aware of him for two years before his arrest but still there was insufficient evidence to detain him just over a month after they finally did right before the christmas holidays germany was hit by the deadliest terror attack in years given security services say they've identified some ten and a half thousand radical islamists in the country that's up from less than four thousand back in twenty eleven. and his four co-defendants deny all of the charges against them and the trial is expected to continue well into twenty eighteen but
should they be found guilty major questions will have to be asked of the security services over how someone who preached so openly the words of radical jihad could be allowed to do so within germany and go unpunished for so long peter all of. the only preacher accused of inspiring terror attacks police in spain found links to one while investigating a terrorist cell. last month sara attacks in barcelona and campbell's preacher in question died the day before those attacks when a bomb factory inside a house exploded. preachers of also come to the attention of the authorities in the united kingdom as well and german chadri is believed to have inspired an attacker who killed soldier lee rigby and twenty thirteen the preacher was jailed for over five years for openly supporting islamic state and trying to get others to do so as well we spoke to counter terrorism specialist he believes the phenomenon has a deep political background what government policy throughout the european and
western world is essentially neglect and reject the idea that it's politics and political factors that are essentially driving political violence the whole idea of hate preachers what it basically sais is that the individuals who walk conducting the violence themselves have no political agency they are simply being manipulated and grooved and therefore we can stop this ruling from happening by dealing with the hate preachers when the reality of the matter is that these issues that are operating overwhelmingly on a structural level so whilst of course we can have a discussion and debate around individual ideologues the reality is that stability and some resemblance of peace will only happen when the structural change . images of top flight american footballers kneeling during the national anthem
before games are fired up a nationwide rout over patriotism but until recently there's been more behind the tradition of opening matches with the star-spangled banner than you might have realized is my goal france is santiago. american football and donald trump just don't mix chum has lashed out at fellow players for bending the need during the national anthem and the protests just keep on coming let's recap what you love to see one of these n.f.l. owners when somebody disrespects our flag to say get that son of a up the field right now out these guys used in sports platform to try to divide. this president needs a good history lesson i'm pissed off i'll be honest with you but this is an issue that it's not only our players but are we it's basically ignorance he doesn't understand it i'm not sure if our president understands those rights if the people who benefited most from america despise it and increasingly they do what does that leave the rest of us and there is also
a hash tag war on the social media the date they need team defense players rights in their protest against police brutality and they're up against the respect the flag team posting videos like this of players jerseys and n.f.l. memorabilia being burnt now the last time the bend the knee argument got this much attention was of course over the game of thrones i'm not here to bend the knee and join me over fees and down since there's a lot of talk about respect and pride when it comes to your country here is a patriot senator mccain i was appalled to learn last month that many of the ceremonies honoring members of our armed services at n.f.l. games are not actually being conducted out of a sense of patriotism but for profit in the form of millions of dollars in taxpayers' money going from the department of defense to wealthy enough self franchises back in two thousand and fifteen mr mccain came out with
a detailed report on how in the fall national anthem celebrations were actually being paid for a lot of the part of the fence here's where the taxpayers' dollars were going. to on field color guard performances of the national anthem and full field flag ceremonies now this report lists sports teams who got the cash for patriotic ceremonies however the funds have dried up since twenty sixteen asked senators put a stop to what they called aid patriotism returning to trump's own to rot against the n.f.l. teams arthur blank owner of the atlanta falcons says trump creates division and undermines the ideals of american democracy but the falcons got a total of eight hundred seventy nine thousand dollars in just four years now robert kraft of the new england patriots said that he was deeply disappointed by trump's comments but he couple of years before that his team got seven hundred thousand dollars of funds for national anthem ceremonies now trumps remarks were
divisive and this respectful the criticism coming from terry and kim of the owners of the buffalo bills they took six hundred fifty thousand dollars from the d.o.d. back when the patriotism was allowed let's not get it twisted for his sake in these billionaire owners like jerry jones of the day. in kraft in the pages they could care less about civil rights they could care less about the state of black america in this struggle against police terror but they knew that if they sided with the troll who was extremely unpopular in all spheres of american society the owners risked a walkout some type of players strike there was such incredible unity among the players that the owners had no choice but the laws are in with the players they were protecting their own interests and their own bottom would. despite british newspapers best efforts to put off that football fans from coming to moscow
thousands ahead for championship matches and they've been telling us what kind of welcome but really perceived that among all stories still ahead. here's what people have been saying about rejected in the us actually just pull along well below the show i go out of my way to find you know a lot of the really packs a punch oh yeah it is the john oliver of marty americans do the same we are apparently better than the blue things that sometimes see people you've never heard of love redacted tonight i'm president of the world bank so. i'm going to write me seriously send us an e-mail. in case you're new to the game this is how it works not the economy is built around corporate confirmations from washington the washington post media the media the. voters elect
a businessman to run this country business because. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. i was always told this is ground in iraq and syria the fate of the children of foreign militants is in question a few days ago there were new arrivals at an orphanage in baghdad and as in previous cases most of the children appeared to be scarred by their experiences they were taken care of by the teenage sister who was married to a minister and while there's no argument that children should be allowed to return . deciding the fate of the wives of fighters is
a deeply divisive issue. we have no idea what cons they have committed or may have committee that so i don't think they should be allowed back in the lake be rehabilitated they usually do when they chose to go out there actually i think we've got to sort out the war criminals who have been responsible for them crimes you talk of the talking about the women i think it's right that we screen them we find out what they've been involved in or why they made a decision to go out and actually that could be used as a good resource in terms of gathering intelligence do you honestly think that somebody is committed any kind of atrocity is going to hold their hands up and you have absolutely no way of knowing whether they did or whether they didn't they're not going to admit to it so i'm sorry what do you take that risk with the women and children in this country when we couldn't bring in a mean and they could be telling as yes we we've had a change of heart we realize we shouldn't have done
a we didn't commit any crime they come in in the you know you've got a plot for another terror attack in this country while the vast majority of terrorist plots and the terrorist activity that we've seen over these dreadfully seen over these past few months here in london or manchester are actually a whole growing problems they're not people who. called from outside decided. that actually it with your replies by people radicalized by isis and their ideology of violence or through the internet. preachers. we have to divide to close these people we have to make sure that they had. a letter hired somebody who may have taken that i was ready to come on there's a slight difference i'm not talking about people beheading people if they've been involved in dog how was i know if i heard there was criminal are they how do you know they should be held to account for their war crimes we can't know about children how did you learn of people who are not what i how old they are i gave them homemade how do you know what i see how do you know that they are and that's
exactly the point how do you know that they are an icon community we will not know three thousand five hundred jihad is on a watch list in this country is three thousand five hundred extremists in this country right now the police have said they don't know where they all made the police have said that they do not know what the cone by his own admission is said he doesn't know how many idea where any of them are what you are talking about is somebody if i came to you and i had been and committed some atrocity but i swore to you or how to. how would you prove that i had or i hadn't you come up with one way or the other and i'm sorry i used the law is not judging you can have the law of the jungle we have with you. bring it back and those laws have to take their process i weeded out the point you have to make very clear yes if we don't you know we don't find any blood guilty without which you process and we have to go through that process so there are there are terrorism laws there are processes in which the
intelligence agencies of police should be able to follow. the two thousand british football fans have descended on the russian capital for european champions of the matches liverpool supporters got a warm welcome on tuesday for their match with spartak moscow ahead of the game that ended in a one all draw the hosts handed out warm blankets and souvenir t. shirts was part of a campaign called gentle family russian warm welcome which kicked off a new city of rostov last march of the day it's the turn of manchester united but before the british football fans even flew out to russia the media at home was giving them plenty of warnings on what they might expect many showed videos of hooligans and repeated that it is dangerous and unsafe to travel to russia so we've been out to ask the fans themselves about their own experiences. the russian people are very very nice very good warm welcome the move was aboard the silicon valley gold jewelry let it go for a joy bolton generally was faithful very very safe one found very good all the way
